Re: Update manager error. Why?

My system update sometimes shows a red 'X" and says it can't refresh the list of updates... then minutes later I get a green check mark and all is OK. If it can't refresh the list how does the dreaded "X" go away without showing me any updates to install? Is the list of mirrors a dynamic one that c...

Re: Update manager error. Why?

It means exactly what it says, you don't have the correct signing keys for that obs-studio PPA. Suggest you simply remove it and then re-add it, that should pull in the correct keys.

Re: [SOLVED] Losing internet connection after using 'SUSPEND'

Yep, some house-keeping with the kernels may be in order there, those take up a lot of disk space. Personally I usually keep only 1 or 2 kernels around, more only while I'm testing out a new kernel. If you want some help with the housekeeping, if you run this it will remove all but your current ker...

Re: Losing internet connection after using 'SUSPEND'

You are quite welcome, sorry for my slight sloppiness in providing the solution. ;) Please take a moment to edit the first post's subject line to add that the topic is SOLVED. The reason you're seeing this now is because it's an issue only with recent versions of the 4.15 kernel series. I know it d...

Re: Losing internet connection after using 'SUSPEND'

If I paste it in separately, after the fact, the terminal doesn't ask me for my p/w! Fwiw I am not making a mistake when typing my p/w after the commands you sent, yet it asks me again for the p/w then accepts it. No, the mistake was entirely mine. The last line basically was redirected into the pa...

The part you quoted is missing the last line from what I gave you. Did you run that, too? I probably should have given you that as a separate command, I think it got lost when you entered your password: sudo chmod +x /lib/systemd/system-sleep/reset_network_driver gm10, Oddly enough although I am us...

Yes! Remarkably that gives me the connection again! What's going on?

Thanks. After you resume from suspend, run this in a terminal and see if your Internet connections starts working again:

Code: Select all

sudo modprobe -r sky2;sudo modprobe sky2
Let me know.

Yes! Remarkably that gives me the connection again! What's going on?

You may want to turn OFF Power Management for your wifi adapter. No mention of any adapter maybe as you expected? I didn't know there was a wi-fi adapter! fred@Area52 ~ $ iwconfig enp3s0 no wireless extensions. enp4s0 no wireless extensions. lo no wireless extensions. fred@Area52 ~ $ Thanks, "ES"

[SOLVED] Losing internet connection after using 'SUSPEND'

For some reason I lose my connection to the web when I wake the machine from SUSPEND. All I need do is invoke that mode for a few secs and my connection is gone when I wake it up. I thought maybe it was a kernel issue so I chose 2 older ones and the result was the same, connection still lost. Of cou...

HI ES44AC8102, Did you restart or at least logout and back in after re-installing FVD? I have no idea how to fix what is currently going on with your system beyond what we have already discussed. You might re-install the whole system and run into the same issues with FVD, it may work the way it use...

Hello phd21, Normally I do watch or inspect the list to see what's being installed or taken out.

Re: Flash Video Downloader converter update install trouble

HI phd21,

The file was in the correct default folder, so no changes needed there.

Double clicking the file made it open and install 68 dependencies (whew) But now its working fine! 8)

I will have to look into the other two programs you mentioned.

Thanks very much,
